up the suggestion that the naval

September 29 and 30, Instead of

30 and October 2, as had been In
tended. Captain Robtey D. Evans told
the rcommlttee that It was quite
feasible for Admiral Dewey to ar

and accordingly the following
cablegram was sent:
"Admiral George Dewey, Vllle

that, If convenient, you arrange so
as to arrive here on night of Thurs

MARCONI'S TELEGRAPH CAN BE SECURED
F. J. Cross, the, electrician, who Is promoting the plan to connect the
Islands by wireless telegraphy, received by the Australia mall a letter from
Henry W. Allen secretary of the Wireless Telegraph and Signal Co., Ltd.
This company controls the Marconi wireless telegraph system.
The letter bears the date of Aug. 2, and states that Marconi was at the
time on board the British fleet conducting experiments, the success of
whlcji has recently ,bjwn published. y. .
Secretary Allen writes: There will be no difficulty In connecting all
the Islands you have sent us a map of, If the distances recorded by you are
correct. You may therefore take It for granted that the Wireless Tele
graphy can be adopted throughout Honolulu and Hawaii group of Islands,
and when you compare figures against the expenditure necessary for laying
cables, you will find such greatly In favor of wireless tellgraphy."
"It Is of course quite Impossible for us to send men to every country
whose representatives are making enquiries about our system. We should
be very pleased to see you here, and to show you several Installations we
have at work up to distances of thirty miles.
"It Is not, however, necessary that you should come to this country to
Inspect the Wireless Telegraphy, as you will probably have an opportuni
ty of seeing It at work under Mr. Marconi's own superintendence In New
York aud Washington towards the end of September, as not only have
arrangements been made to accompany the International yacht race, so that
the people on shore may know how the yachts are placed during the re-"
gatta, but we have now officers from the American government over here,
who will report what they have seen to the military authorities In Ame
rica, and we have offered to give them a show of our telegraphic system
when Mr. Marconi visits America.
"If you will also let us hear how many stations your group of Islands,
and the exact distances between each station, we shall be able to quote
you the price we should require as royalty for the use of our telegraph
over your Islands."
Mr. Cross has not decided upon his exactplan of action but remarked
this morning, "It Is now beyond question trial the use of wireless tele
graphy for local work Is entirely feasible. The royalty charged Is not
prohibitive by any means, but It is likely that we shall have to Increase
the charges for messages among those who did not come Into the move
ment at the outset. We shall soon secure sites for the telegraph stations."
